There are certain people in the Indian political front who always have something interesting and controversial to say. Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh is certainly one of the them. He is known for taking a jibe at anyone and I repeat anyone who challenges the UPA government in anyway. His most controversial comments include calling Baba Ramdev a thug (which he is actually 😉 ) among others. Anyway, nowadays he has become more of a conspiracy theorist weaving stories and theories that link the RSS with the people whom he sees as the political and social opponents of the Congress.
His jibe at Ramdev came during the latter’s fast at the Ramlila Maidan which indeed in a fiasco which we all know. He also claimed Ramdev’s fast was backed by the the RSS and it turned out to be true. And then when Anna started his fast, Singh, to everyone’s surprise, said that the entire Anna Hazare movement was completely backed and supported by the RSS! Everybody ridiculed him and the BJP was especially critical of him and he took a lot of flak from members of team Anna as well. But his allegation seemed have some truth when key RSS leaders came out and issued statements that the RSS was one of the driving force behind the movement. Digvijaya was right the second time! Now he made another massive statement about links between Anna himself and the BJP.
He said that the BJP have been planning to make Anna Hazare their Presidential candidate! Now thats a big prediction. There’s some time left before we can say anything about this. But I must admin. This is one outrageous prediction by Digvijaya Singh!
Now recently he has been talking about his so called ABC Theory. Its about RSS’s three big plans to derail the UPA.
Plan A: Use Baba Ramdev -> Crashed
Plan B: Use Anna Hazare -> Question Mark
Plan C: Use Sri Sri Ravi Shankar -> Soon to begin
This is what he had to say to the media.
“First they brought Baba Ramdev, and when he was exposed they came with Anna. We have heard now they are trying to bring Sri Sri Ravishankar ji. I have always been saying from day one that all these are over all plans of the RSS, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) combine. They want to divert the attention of the people of the country. From the issue of involvement of Sangh activists in terror act in Malegaon, Ajmer dargah, Hyderabad, Samjhauta express, so it’s overall plan to divert attention from corruption done by BJP members”
His above comments were ridiculed by both Ravi Shankar and Ravi Shankar Prasad (BJP Spokesperson). I wonder whats going on in his mind. People nowadays view him as a buffoon. I see him being abused on twitter. When media approached Arvind Kejriwal to respond to his theory, he said “Mr. Digvijaya Singh’s statements are not worthy to be commented upon”.
We’ll just wait and see how this “Great Indian Brawl” pans out. The upcoming Winter Parliament Session should be interesting.
